DIETERICH, Ill. (AP) - The pharmacy in the central Illinois village of Dieterich (DEE’-tuh-rik) closed several years ago. But the town of 600 residents soon will be able to fill prescriptions locally again through a new tele pharmacy.

Tele pharmacies allow off-site pharmacists to help patients via a secure video link. The Effingham Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2906fMP ) pharmacist LaDonna Poehler will provide tele pharmacy services at the Dieterich clinic from her pharmacy in the nearby city of Newton.

Dr. Michelle Braddy practices medicine in Dieterich. She says the tele pharmacy will help patients who have been driving to Effingham or Newton to fill their prescriptions.

The tele pharmacy will start operating in the fall when a clinic addition is completed.
